Statement Sweater

Do you ever come across a piece of clothing while shopping that you
just know will become a staple item in your wardrobe? That’s how I felt
when I found this light-weight sweater at the JCrew Outlet a couple
weeks ago. Guess what? It’s still available! A link is provided below.

For obvious reasons, I was drawn to this top because of the built-in statement necklace. How easy is that?! All I have to do is add earrings and maybe a bracelet, and I’m done! The sweater does all the work for me. The color palette also is versatile enough that I can wear it now with white skinny jeans and a blush purse, but I can carry it into the early fall months with dark wash jeans and brown riding boots. I rarely buy clothes these days unless my cost-per-wear is pretty high, so the fact that I can basically wear this year-round was a major selling point for me.

On a side note, if you follow me on Instagram, then you will know that I bought this purse from E! News’ Love It, Buy It segment a few weeks back. I am completely obsessed – it makes me wish I would have ordered the purse in mint, too! I definitely will be checking out other bags from Melie Bianco.

  7. You are too sweet, thank you! I don't think I'm so photogenic, but I appreciate the compliment. 🙂 Yes, the built-in statement necklace sure takes away a step in the getting ready process every morning.

  13. I LOVE that the shirt has a built in statement necklace! Talk about making it easy to get dressed!! J Crew can do no wrong in my book. I can't wait to break out my white pants again.. I always feel weird wearing them before Memorial Day for some reason.. thank goodness that is this weekend! 🙂

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland
